Safesite has installed KeeGuard Topfix and Kee Walk for Wightlink Ferries on their refuelling tanks moored in Portsmouth Harbour to allow safe access to the sounding caps and level sensors on top of the tanks, which are used to monitor the tank fuel levels.
KeeGuard Topfix, which has been designed specifically to provide collective edge protection for metal profile roofs, allows safe access onto both tanks while Kee Walk anti-slip walkway provides a level walking surface to the sounding caps and level sensors.
"As the platforms are floating it’s essential that those working on top of the tanks are protected" explains Ben Phillips, route superintendent. "Safesite was able to offer a combined solution, providing both fall protection and a safe, firm surface to walk on.”
